Function: Returns a string with HTML escaped characters.

if f<>nil then
if b<>nil then
b.write nativeStringMBS(EncodingToHTMLMBS(editfield1.text))
end if

The source string is converted to unicode if it is not allready in unicode. Than for every character the functions looks for the escaped character code and returns a HTML encoded string.

e.g. "München" -> "M&uuml;nchen"

This functions uses Xojo unicode strings, so you may need to convert back to a NativeString before saveing the string to a file.

Return characters (chr(10) and chr(13)) are not converted to <BR> codes.

May return "" on low memory conditions.

The result of this function is unpredictable on bad input strings.
(e.g. no encoding, or encoding does not match the content of the string)

Options can be 1 to not encode ASCII values < 128, so quotes, <, > and & are not encoded.
